Major Mick visits the club

We were delighted to support Major Mick Stanley in his  homemade craft Tintanic II as he paddled along the Grand Union canal on 29 July as part of his 100 mile fundraising trip in aid of Alzheimer's UK Members of the club accompanied him on the water while others watched from the bank.  

Halloween paddle

Before the latest lockdown, we managed to get in a spooky Halloween (socially distanced) paddle involving 20 club members 

Litter picking on the canal

In the afternoon session on Saturday 13 April seven members did some litter picking to support Surfers Against Sewage’s beach clean up campaign which British Canoeing are supporting. We cleaned the stretch of the canal from the club to CRT’s site and removed 4 bags of plastic bottles, cans and glass bottles as well as a fire extinguisher.


Solihull canoe club Christmas
Some intrepid paddlers were out being silly in Canadians the weekend before Christmas. The 200m race was extremely competitive, with some dodgy tactics & outrageous cheating!! 
Happy Christmas everyone & see you in 2019!
